Trader Arrested For Naming Pet Dog ‘Buhari’

A 30-year-old trader has been arrested by the police in Ogun state for naming his pet dog 'Buhari.'





The trader, Joe Fortemose Chinakwe, of No 10, Omikunle Street, Sango-Ota, Ogun State, was reportedly arrested last weekend, after one of his neighbours of Northern extraction complained bitterly that he named his dog after his father, Alhaji Buhari.


Vanguard learned that the complainant reported the case at Sango Police Station, last Saturday, after which the trader was arrested and detained.

However, it was gathered that efforts by the police to recover the dog, which they intended using as evidence failed following a clever move by the suspect.


The trader, said to be trading in female wears at a popular market in Sango, allegedly directed his friends secretly to kill the dog and possibly eat the meat in order to avoid being implicated. It was gathered that consistent appeals by his friends and relations for the police to grant him bail failed as the complainant and his kinsmen reportedly threatened to kill the trader if he was released on bail.


Trader denied bail

The case, however, took a different dimension two days later when Chinakwe’s relatives went to Sango police station to further plead for his bail only to be informed that the case file and the suspect have been transferred to Ogun State Police Command headquarters at Eleweran.

A relation to the suspect, who simply identified himself as Chiedozie, told Vanguard that his brother was being persecuted for no just cause and expressed fears that he may either be poisoned inside police cell or thrown into jail.


Chiedozie said: “Chinakwe is a lover of dogs and he names them after things that tickle him. He bought this dog a year ago and named it Buhari. Unfortunately, some Northerners, who dominate the vicinity where he resides misconstrued his intention and connived to take him up. The complainant then claimed it was derogatory because his father answers Buhari.”


Police sources, however, told Vanguard that the actions of the suspect “were very provocative.”
The source said: “he not only named the dog Buhari but boldly wrote it on the body of both sides of the dog and was seen parading the neighbourhood dominated by Northerners with it.”


As at press time, relations to the suspect were still making frantic efforts to effect his bail while his accusers are insisting that he must be prosecuted.
Police confirms arrest
When contacted around 8pm yesterday, the acting Police spokesman in Ogun State, Abimbola Oyeyemi, ASP, said he was still trying to get the Divisional Police Officer in-charge of Sango for details.


Oyeyemi later called, stating that: “I have made enquiries. The man bought a dog and inscribed Buhari on both sides of its body. One Mallam lodged a complaint and when our men got there, we found out that it was true. You know such thing can cause serious breach of the peace and ethnic or religious unrest. We are charging him to court for conduct likely to cause a breach of peace.”
Continuing, he said: “He was arrested last Saturday and we are taking him to court later today (Tuesday) or tomorrow morning (today). You know an average Northerner will feel bad over such a thing. It can cause serious ethnic crisis or religious confrontation because when you are relegating such a name to a certain person, you are indirectly insulting him.”


When asked about the whereabouts of the dog that will be used as evidence against the suspect, the police spokesman said: “The dog cannot follow anybody except the owner. We will use him as our evidence because he did not deny it.”





LMAO!....Some people can over do it..How can you live in the kind of environment described and do such?
I know someone whose Dog is Obama

Denied bail for what? Did he kill anyone?

Alright! his action has hurt someone but there should be a better way to resolve the issue, detaining and bail denial is uncalled for. It's clear the NPF don't know what they are there for. Yeye.

You pple dont seem to get it. He wrote buhari nd both sides of d dog and d dog parades. Hence why he cant prescribe the dog for evidence. You can name ur dog anythin, even ur mothers name if you so wish, but writting it on the dog? The guy did it on purpose! When did pple start inscribing names on pets? Goats YES and its just marks not names

Northerners like taking offence. Tufiakwa!!! The dog is the man's dog and he's free to give his dog any name he likes. What's there? If you like, you can give your dog my name, I won't complain. Mtcheww!! They should release dat man oo. They should be happy dat someone named their dog buhari, sef. Inukwa m trouble??? I like dat man. If I see dat man, I will buy four more dogs for him. One will be Osibanjo, others will be Lai Muhammad, Rochas and Amechi. Aunty Stella, let me not look for this comment oo

He has a right to name is dog anything he wanted, however he violated the laws of Nigeria by carrying out an act that can invite people to violence.

The same way you have the right to your body and can dress as you want, but you can dress in such a way that you'd be charged for "indecent exposure."

Things get limits everywhere. BTW, how many people have you seen with the name of their dog inscribed on it, talk less of on both sides, how many?

Na wa ooo. Nigeria Police force. No evidence and u wan carry the guy go court. Even if he did it, its not a crime na or is it? Foolish people everywhere.

You are free to give any name to your Dog.But this man here used a permanent marker to write BUHARI boldly on his Dog.That is total disrespect and a breach of d ethnic code.He is a stupid man to do that in his locality.He deserves what he got!Nonsense

They want to use the dog as evidence how? Or they want to put it in the witness box and ask it's name? The dog even escaped them, u can imagine police cannot apprehend dog na robbers them go catch? Such high level of fuckery.

With all due respect, where your sensitivity ends is where mine starts. A woman was murdered for insisting a man doesn't perform ablution in front on her shop. Another was hackec to death in Abuja for daring to preach. People's farmlands are destroyed by herds of cows and in addition they're killed and their villages sacked and nobody is doing anything to curb. Is the entity Buhari a trademark that nobody else can use it? Don't people name their dogs Billy, Snoop, Puffy etc. NPF too is VERY PATHETIC, a Federal Police officer left everything on his desk (that's if there's anything tho) and went to arrest a Nigerian citizen over a civil matter of dog name and we're here giggling like fools. What happened to the open threat to kill a man if he's released by the Police? I'm guessing it's not a crime to threaten to murder someone if the Police doesn't do what you want them to do. Same set of people mount speakers and wake up residents in the wee hours of the morning because they want to pray and everyone is suppose to tolerate them but a man gives his dog a name and is arrested for "act capable of breaching peace and security"...what arrant nonsense!

Arrest and charge to court for doing what? Fulani people no dey name their cows Musa, Ibrahim, etc? The toxicity of ethnic sentiments will rob this country of anything positive

HEAD MASTER said...

The police spokes man said his men saw the dog but the dog wouldn't go with anyone except the owner. So no one took pictures as evidence? Even when he parades the so called buhari bingo.

Good for him

James said...

The man is a very foolish stupid fellow. He should be prosecuted. Imagine the nonsense. Out of all the different challenges human being has in the world , it is naming a dog Buhari that is his own problem.Why not make money and join the Forbes list. Or go to the Olympics and win some gold medal for the country like Usain Bolt or Michael Phelps. SMH Common sense is truly not common.

I think he should have stopped at giving the name instead of writing it boldly on the dog.
When I was growing up a neighbour named his dog IBB and we lived among Hausas, in fact we had a mosque in front of our house and no one picked offence. Eventually IBB's cousin moved into our neighbourhood, at first it was awkward but she didn't pick offence either.
As someone said above the other guy should have bought a goat and named him after the man or his son.

Lmaooo I don die o. This is so funny. Esp where they said, the dog will not follow anyone except the owner. Before nko? Ahahahahah

I remember growing up people named their dogs rawlings, and they were threatened then that if Ghanaians caught them they'd be in trouble. And Ghadaffi too. This is super hilarious.

Well, honestly the only thing is he shouldn't have inscribed the name on the dog.. it shows he deliberately wanted to infuriate his neighbours. Quiet apart from anything legal, he just put his life on the line knowing that these people are sensitive to their own and religion. You don't trigger people that are already susceptible to being violent. Gross Foolishness on the part of the young man. He's even lucky they didn't butcher him silently. Duhhhhh

sisi eko said...

My dear I understand your point o. But the police who attended to them did very well. Otherwise they would have put laws into their hands. Granted that there should be freedom of naming ur pet whatever u like. But when u do it with the intention of spiting the already aggrieved, then u are on ur own.

We shouldn't match their religious or tribal hostility by putting our lives on the line. Cos in the end it'll only create unrest in the community.

Deacon said...

A lot of unintelligent numbskulls on this blog here,name your dog whatever you want but freedom of expression has its limits.The police most probably saved his life considering the environment he lives in.I've never in all my 35 years in this world seen a dog with its name boldly written on both sides.Eka joy,queen and the other ethnic bigots need to put a car battery in the empty space in their heads that shd have housed their brain.

Oh please shut up. People have named lesser animals,names of worthier people. Buhari should be flattered. This case is hilarious and shouldnt go beyond a civil defence office. It's not even a case for the NPF. It's his dog, he can call it whatever pleases him. He just went overboard by painting the name on the dog,so let him face the stress for his idlessness and acute stupidity.
